took a good 30 minutes before I could capture the flickering light from a firefly while walking through the Botanical Gardens one night, but it was worth the shot.  
 The hot temperatures mean lazy days by the water and catching fireflies at night.  I grew up catching insects and bugs to pass the time as a child.  This generation of adolescents are growing up on fastfood and technology.  Everything changes yet nothing changes at all.  We still all face the same struggles no matter what generation we are from – peer pressure, drugs, alcohol and more.

But for one moment, let your breath get caught by the flicker of light that makes no sense but embodies the beauty our world possesses.
